Welcome to SheridanFootball.com!
It seems like it has taken a long time to get here, but Spring Football Practice begins this Thursday. We will practice this Thursday, May 9th, then Monday through Friday the next week (13th-17th), and then Monday through Thursday of the next week (May 20-23). The last practice will be a scrimmage starting at 3:15. We started on a Thursday so we could end on the 23rd of May because Graduation is on the 24th.
We currently have 69 squad members, of which three are playing baseball. That is up a few from where we have been the last three years. We have had some welcome additions from last year. Chris Whitman is playing football for the first time since 9th grade. Brandon Bennett has moved back to Sheridan and both of those guys are playing quarterback. Dustin Reid (Soph. to be) has just joined us from baseball, giving us three new quarterbacks going into spring. We have four injured players that probably won't go through any practices: Caleb Ford (knee-LBer), Branson Myers (knee-LBer), Braden Lunday (ankle-Tailback), and Tyler Wallace (ankle-Receiver/Corner). Tyler joined the team this past January and made an immediate impact with his speed and athleticism. They all should be ready by July when we start back our summer workouts after school is out.
It has been a very good and productive off-season in the weight room. We will probably test one more time this week. Then it will be into spring practice. We have two returning starters on defense and five on offense. Thus, we have a lot of holes to fill. Our main goal this spring is making sure everyone is in the right position to help our team the most. Staying injury free and good weather is a must!! We will start out very basic so we can get a good look at the upcoming sophomores and new people and get them plugged into the best spot. With only 10 days allowed, every practice is important.
Hope you can come watch us for any or all of our spring practices. It will be in the stadium and will start approximately 3:00 each practice day.
